    Chris, this is a painful subject. For the first few years I was able to get away with "enforcing" strict rules about how much "stuff" my lovely bride could bring on a trip. However when we went to one of our first Trike gatherings and she saw some sharp looking trailers . . . . . .well . . . . .then the fight started. LOL. Have been pulling one ever since. Need to go out and look at the name as it is not one of the big guys. Prior to what I have now, I really enjoyed my home made Harbor Freight trailer that I built. Had over 40,000 miles on that trailer with no problems at all. My new to me one that we pull now is . . . . . .wait for it . . . . . . .BIGGER (but of course it is, LOL).

      I only pull a trailer if we are doing over nighters, I have a wags pet carrier, we can put luggage in it and also can take our toy poodle with us.

      My wife cannot travel now but when she could I pulled a cyclemate cm2000. I had to take her oxy. concentrator and other medical supplies so even staying one night I needed the trailer.

            Yep! Been pulling trailers since the early 90's. I recently purchased the aluminum trailer and have pulled it almost a thousand miles with no problems.

                  The Cycle Mate is probably the favorite. They are square and the one I own now is the largest they make. Most luggage is square to some extent. As far as looks the Bushtec Turbo has always been a pretty design.

                            They look way to small to even sleep comfortable, Also wonder how much they weigh??
                            I'll take my Bunkhouse.

                              Tom, you have to remember that I end up with "plenty" of leg room in just about anything. LO


                              I did, however find a pic of my new to me trailer. I think it captures my "creative side."

                                Life is short an so am I, thus why be like so many others. I enjoy life to the fullest, and have never been afraid to have a little fun. The book says that I MUST grow old, but there is nothing in the fine print that says I need to grow up. If I can laugh at myself, it makes laughing at everyone else so much easier.

                                All the best.

                                When I picked up my Ion [Teardrop] at Motavation Cycles in MD. Mr. Leatherman was there and made the comment he could sleep in it.

                              Even with a trike I think that trailer would be a little heavy.

                                I pull a Bellair quick camp with my 2008 Motortrike with no issues. Got up to 85mph in a passing situation and solid as a rock.
